Buzz clip from the
latest album. And then some.

album just tearing things up like nobody’s business – read the
official BLURT review HERE – Cursive has announced a raft of tour dates
starting late April and running through mid May. Full itinerary, below.


You know you wanna hear the record before you see the show.
As we advised you, it’s the Omaha
band’s “latest batch of highly bitter and literate indie rock songs. Throughout
this new album frontman Tim Kasher ruminates on themes that have obsessed him
for years — fear of settling, the struggle for artistic release and
accomplishment, society’s insistence that a man grow up.”


Nobody around here wants to grow up, we can guarantee you
that. Meanwhile, Cursive has also just unveiled their new video for the tracks
“From the Hips,” and we’ve got it on heavy rotation over in the BLURT video
kiosk. You can surf around until you find said kiosk, or simply click through
HERE and glom onto the tune. Directed by Michael Grodner, it’ll have you
feeling kinda, um, hungry before it’s done…
